I wanted to share a new recipe with everyone now that it’s starting to get colder out! This recipe is so yummy even the kids devour it! A fellow homeschooling mom shared this recipe with me a few years ago and we’ve made it ever since! It’s called “Hot Taco Soup”  and if you like tacos and you like soup/chili, then you’ll absolutely LOVE this!



  • 1 1/2 lbs extra lean ground beef
  • 1 med Onion, chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, chopped (I omit this)
  • 1 – 17oz can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 2 – 14oz cans kidney beans (or your favorite kind)
  • 1 – 8oz package frozen corn (or canned w/juice)
  • 1 package Taco Seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Optional Garnish: shredded cheddar cheese, diced avocado, sour cream, sliced green onion, Fritos (YES, I said Fritos! We crunch them up and toss ‘em in the soup! YUM!)


In large stockpot, brown ground beef, onion and celery. Drain grease, add tomatoes & all but garnish. Simmer for at least 30 minutes.

Serve in individual bowls and garnish as desired!
